What we're about

Welcome to HealthyPlanet's LI Healthy Vegan Meetup! Come to our events to have fun, share healthful meals, discuss vegan diet benefits, health issues and more. ANYONE interested in the healthy vegan diet and lifestyle is WELCOME!

HealthyPlanet is made up of community leaders and volunteers with diverse talents, years of experience and the desire to work together to continue making a real difference in our world. For over 25 years members of the leadership team have been a creative and thriving force behind the movement to educate Long Islanders about simple food and lifestyle choices that lead to powerful health and environmental solutions. Our team has run hundreds of events from Dinner/Lectures featuring cutting-edge speakers from across the country, to Restaurant Outing/Lectures, to film showings, Eco-Cafés, as well as our ongoing Healthy Planet Radio Show on WUSB, 90.1FM. And of course, 100% of our events are 100% plant-based!

We know that our efforts make a difference. We encourage those who are similarly empowered to join us in creating a new vision that continually goes beyond old beliefs about what is possible, and therefore creates vibrant, ever-larger results that are worthy of our lives.

By joining this meetup group you are becoming a part of our vibrant, caring, and supportive community. We promote healthy vegan food in its natural state, not processed or purified, and stay away from 'junk' foods loaded with trans fats, artificial chemicals, sugar, sodium, and genetically modified wheat, corn, and soy ingredients. Come to our potlucks and try everything from whole grain vegan pizza, to sweet pies, chocolate cakes, hearty and nourishing soups, dairy-free ice cream, fresh salads and fruit, juices, smoothies and more. Get healthy, detoxify, learn from our nutrition experts and gain access to our healthful vegan recipes and health tips.

This group is open to ALL from 'herbivores' and health-conscious vegans to 'omnivores' who are just curious about healthful, organic vegan food. Very few of us are 100% raw vegans, the majority of members are mostly vegans and vegetarians. Our focus is on promoting and moving toward optimal health, well-being, vitality, and longevity -- both personally and globally -- while being committed to nonviolence. We CAN achieve optimum health, while treating all life on Earth (both human and non-human animals) with compassion, dignity and respect.

Meetups include vegan food potlucks, raw food classes, nature walks and hikes, foraging trips, picnics, beach parties, and outdoor exercise classes. Meet our group organizers and active members (https://www.meetup.com/rawfood-218/about/) and subscribe to our informative mailing list and message board (https://www.meetup.com/rawfood-218/messages/boards/).

We are encouraging you to become an event organizer. Please contact us if you are interested. Otherwise, participate in our events and bring an organic vegan dish. Check our raw vegan recipes (http://livefood.wikispaces.com/Raw+Food+Recipes). If you don't have time to prepare a dish, here is a list of places (https://www.meetup.com/rawfood-218/messages/boards/thread/33002812) where you can purchase organic vegan food on Long Island.

We celebrate your arrival into our community, and are looking forward to meeting you at one of our events!

This group arises out of the Vegan Self-Care, Growth and Spirituality Group, which you are welcome to as well. Here, the focus is on building our meditation practices. We have a silent meditation session of twenty minutes. We get acquainted and have an introduction to meditation-with inputs from members, and discussion post-meditation. Meditating with others is calming, empowering and supportive to one's own personal practice! As vegans, meditating helps to cleanse our minds of the herding culture's indoctrination. We seek to move beyond to cultivate love, compassion, joy and peace for all, for all the animals, all species. Group is also intended to be community-building.
